MISSION & OBJECTIVE
To establish a true multicultural experience represented by the world’s independent film community. We firmly believe that the definition of a multicultural experience is pluralistic: Comprehensive and inclusive, reflecting disability, race, and social diversity. Together, we can encourage the world to Think Outside the Box.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival is the first of its kind known in Los Angeles. We search for films and filmmakers who reflect the world as it truly presents itself: Ranging from individuals with disabilities, to people of diverse religions, LGBT, colors, and family structures. Filmmakers, crew members, and actors with disabilities are highly encouraged to submit.
